About Carlson Bier

Personal Injury Lawyers in Murphysboro Illinois

Welcome to Carlson Bier, a leading personal injury law firm dedicated to providing comprehensive legal services across Illinois. Our imperative is supporting victims of personal injuries and ensuring that they get the justice they rightfully deserve. With our extensive knowledge base and expert efficiencies, we bring over a decade of hands-on experience in handling compelling cases with compassion, commitment, and confidence.

Personal injury law encompasses various unique situations where an individual suffers harm due to another’s negligence or intentional actions. Some prevalent instances include auto accidents, slip & fall incidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, wrongful death suits among numerous other scenarios. Personal injuries can instigate devastating effects on one’s life – from physical impairment and emotional trauma to financial constraints. It is integral for the victims to comprehend their legal rights in such circumstances and act judiciously.

Carlson Bier’s dynamic team packs a powerful punch when it comes to advocating for your rights effectively:

• Expert Strategy: We construct solid case strategies with meticulous precision based on underlying facts and applicable laws.

• Aggressive Representation: Our proficient attorneys will champion your cause aggressively while maintaining utmost professionalism.

• Comprehensive Evaluation: Every case undergoes intense scrutiny before developing a litigation approach designed for success.

• Vigilant Guidance: We provide timely guidance throughout each step of the process concerning crucial decisions affecting the case’s outcome.

• Unwavering Commitment: At Carlson Bier, we maintain unwavering dedication towards obtaining fair compensation for clients.

In personal injury lawsuits in Illinois, demonstrating another party’s fault by proving their negligence often serves as the bedrock of a successful case. This usually involves establishing four essential elements:

1) Duty – The party at fault owed you a duty not to cause harm

2) Breach of duty – This person violated their obligation through certain actions or lack thereof

3) Causation – That breach directly caused your injuries

4) Damages or Harm – You suffered actual damages

At Carlson Bier, we can guide you in proving these elements to substantiate a strong personal injury case. We understand that compensation cannot erase the pain and trauma caused by an injury completely; however, it can considerably facilitate financial security during such challenging times. Our pivotal goal is ensuring justice prevails, fostering a smoother recovery process for our clients.

Your time to file a personal injury claim is limited under Illinois law. If this deadline is missed – referred to legally as the statute of limitations – potential plaintiffs may forever lose their right to seek monetary damages. Therefore, getting a head start on your case with immediate legal counsel facilitates ample time needed for thorough investigations, securing evidence, and other critical aspects of building a potent lawsuit.

Selecting the right personal attorney plays a vital role in determining your case’s future course and eventual outcome. Fierce and compassionate representation coupled with vast knowledge about Illinois personal injury laws puts Carlson Bier in its prime position as one of the state’s most dependable law firms.

We make sure that our professional relationships go beyond just client-attorney associations as we put ourselves in your shoes trying to comprehend every individual aspect from your viewpoint by maintaining sensitive communication lines throughout this journey together.

Notable Illinois Appellate Wins

Moruzzi v. CCC Servs., Inc., 2020 IL App (2d) 190411, 171 N.E.3d 61
Background: Insured motorist filed action against insurer for declaratory judgment seeking construction of automobile insurance policy issued to insured and that was in effect when insured was injured by an underinsured driver. The Circuit Court, DuPage County, Bonnie M. Wheaton, J., granted the insurer's motions for summary judgment. Insured appealed.Holdings: The Appellate Court, Zenoff, J., held that:1 medical payments reduction clause in automobile insurance policy conflicted with underinsured motorist provisions so as to render reduction clause ambiguous, and thus medical payment benefits were deductible from insured's damages;2 law firm representing insured did not create common fund or common funds when it reached settlement with underinsured motorist, and thus law firm was not entitled to recover fees under common-fund doctrine; and3 collateral estoppel did not bar automobile insurers from litigating whether common-fund doctrine applied in insured motorist's declaratory judgment action.Affirmed in part and reversed in part.
Maier v. CC Servs., Inc., 2019 IL App (3d) 170640, 132 N.E.3d 795
Background: After insured, who was injured in automobile collision with another driver, recovered full liability limits of driver's policy, she filed amended complaint for declaratory judgment against her own automobile insurer, alleging that insurer breached contractual duty to pay for insured's damages in accordance with uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage in insured's policy and that insurer acted in bad faith in denying insured such coverage. The Circuit Court, La Salle County, Troy D. Holland, J., granted the insurer's motion to dismiss claims as time-barred. Insured appealed.The Appellate Court ruled that neither the insurer nor the insured could add amended policy provisions to the court record. It was decided that the policy's requirement for a written arbitration demand applied to both uninsured and underinsured motorist claims. The court found that a letter from the insured's attorney to the insurer wasn't a valid arbitration demand nor a proof of loss to toll the statute of limitations. Finally, the insurer was permitted to use the defense based on the two-year statute of limitations period. The court's decision was affirmed.
Econ. Premier Assurance Co. v. Country Mut. Ins. Co., 2021 IL App (1st) 192364-U
Holding: The circuit court's order that granted defendant's motion for summary judgment and denied plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment was proper where defendant had no duty to indemnify its insured with respect to the underlying complaint and therefore plaintiff was not entitled to recover against defendant on its subrogation or unjust enrichment claims; affirmed.
Country Preferred Ins. Co. v. Westerheide, 2023 IL App (5th) 220343-U
Holding: The court affirmed judgment of the circuit court granting summary judgment in favor of the plaintiff where the defendant failed to make a written demand for arbitration within two years from the date of the accident as required by the underinsured provisions of the defendant's automotive insurance policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Olsak, 2022 IL App (1st) 200695, 216 N.E.3d 291
In a complex legal case, an insurer sought to avoid defending or indemnifying a hockey player under a policy issued to the player's stepfather after the player was sued for assaulting his coach. The initial Circuit Court ruling favored the insurer, but the Appellate Court reversed this decision, leading to a protracted legal battle. Ultimately, the Appellate Court determined the insurer was liable only up to the $3 million policy limit and found the insurer's four-year delay in seeking a declaratory judgment to be reasonable. This case highlights important aspects of insurance litigation and policy limit liabilities.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Durkin Elec. Co., Inc., 2022 IL App (1st) 210293-U, appeal denied, 199 N.E.3d 1187 (Ill. 2022)
Holding: The circuit court's order that denied plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment and found that defendant was an additional insured under the policy was proper. The circuit court's order that denied defendant's motion for summary judgment and found that plaintiff did not have a duty to defend or indemnify defendant under the policy was proper; affirmed.
Country Preferred Ins. Co. v. Groen, 2017 IL App (4th) 160028, 69 N.E.3d 911
Background: Uninsured motorist (UM) carrier brought action against insured for declaratory judgment that it owed no benefits since workers' compensation received by insured exceeded policy limits. The Circuit Court, Sangamon County, Chris Perrin, J., entered summary judgment in favor of the carrier. Insured appealed.Holdings: The Appellate Court, Harris, J., held that:1 employer's medical payments entitled carrier to setoff, and2 setoff clauses were enforceable.Affirmed.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Frobish, 2021 IL App (3d) 190473-U
Holding: Allegations in the underlying complaint that a township employee caused property damage by excavating and digging out a ditch failed to impose a duty to defend under township employee's individual farm insurance policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Jones, 2018 IL App (1st) 173154-U
Holding: The judgment of the circuit court of Cook County is affirmed; plaintiff is entitled to summary judgment on its claim for a declaratory judgment that it has no duty to defend or indemnify its insured against the underlying complaint because the loss claimed in the underlying complaint is subject to an exclusion. The court held that it would also enter judgment for plaintiff because the underlying complaint does not allege an “occurrence” causing bodily injury within the meaning of the policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Schmitt, 2021 IL App (5th) 190173-U
Holding: The appellate court reversed and remanded the judgment of the circuit court where plaintiff had no duty to defend its insured and thus was not stopped from raising policy defenses to coverage for the underlying tort action contained in the amended declaratory action.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Livorsi Marine, Inc., 222 Ill. 2d 303, 856 N.E.2d 338 (2006) (the late Keith Carlson)
Liability insurer brought action against insureds for a declaratory judgment based on failure to provide timely notice of lawsuits against them. The Circuit Court, Cook County, Stephen A. Schiller, J., entered judgment for the insurer. Insureds appealed. The Appellate Court, Wolfson, J., 358 Ill.App.3d 880, 295 Ill.Dec. 665, 833 N.E.2d 871, affirmed. Leave to appeal was granted.Holdings: The Supreme Court, Garman, J., held that:1 if the insurer did not receive reasonable notice of an occurrence or a lawsuit, the policyholder may not recover under the policy, regardless of whether the lack of reasonable notice prejudiced the insurer, overruling Rice v. AAA Aerostar, Inc., 294 Ill.App.3d 801, 229 Ill.Dec. 20, 690 N.E.2d 1067, and Cincinnati Insurance Co. v. Baur's Opera House, Inc., 296 Ill.App.3d 1011, 230 Ill.Dec. 624, 694 N.E.2d 593, and2 insured did not need to prove that it was prejudiced by delayed notice of lawsuits.Affirmed.
